    Keyboard and mouse intermittently dont work.

    I have had Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit ever since its release and now just a few days ago i updated the kernel and a few other important security updates. Now my keyboard and mouse don't work after booting into Ubuntu. I have a triple boot and they work in windows Xp. even at the GRUB they work smoothly. Its only after booting up in Ubuntu 12.04 that they dont work. Its seems as if they are not detected at all since the lights on the keyboard and mouse intermittently go off.

    Is this a known issue? I am hoping some updates are to blame. Please assist in fixing this.

    When you are at the grub menu try booting in the recovery mode and run a fix on the system and see if it will fix the problem and then try to reboot into the OS again.

    looks like its an issue with opne opf my usb port. I unplugged my keyboard from the back port and have plugged it in the from port and it work fine. I am typing this while the keyboard in the front port. Have to test all other ports and the mouse as well.

    I am glad you got it going. Why don't you mark this tread as solved.
